Expression and nature of Montlobre wines
The terroir comes from Quaternary alluvial deposits on sand-colored marls interspersed with Eocene sandstone benches. This typical Languedoc soil favors a slow and optimal maturation of Merlot grapes which develop a great aromatic complexity. The vines are selected from plots with a fertile soil, red, rich in calcium, iron and other minerals.
The micro-climate allows soils to maintain water during hot summers, which promotes slow development of grapes under perfect conditions.
